See my other mail. It is primarily meant for the blends-dev framework,
but it is not limited to it. If you do it differently, all you need is a
<blend>-all file.

BTW, Since the debian-blends-task.desc was created from what I found in
https://www.debian.org/blends/ and DebianParl was not listed as having
metapackages, it is currently missing in the debian-blends-tasks.desc
file (the same for Debian Design and FreedomBox). So, if DebianParl
should be included there: could you add its section to the file, or send
me a patch? 

If DebianParl uses metapackages, it would be also good to have a link to
a web representation of these in https://www.debian.org/blends/; this
would IMO make the blend more transparent.

Best regards
